... photoreceptors since the retina is an integral part of the CNS. Unlike members of the omega-6 FAs (e.g. arachidonic acid), which are present in all parts of the body, DHA is selectively taken up by the CNS and is needed for a variety of functions, including memory and vision. DHA is concentrated and retained...
